The Story behind Alfred Shaheen Hawaiian Clothing

After attending Whittier College, earning a degree in aeronautical engineering and serving in the Air Army Corps during World War 2, Alfred Shaheen returned to his home state of Hawaii to join his parents’ custom garment business. He used his engineering expertise to craft machinery that allowed him to print, dye and finish his fabrics without having to outsource outside of the islands. By researching rare books and artifacts in the South Pacific and Asia, he developed original prints for his Hawaiian clothing that were true to the heart of the islands he called home. Soon, he began spreading his designs all over the United States and succeeding in popularizing the classic Hawaiian shirt and tropical dress. His clothing was featured in major fashion magazines and sold in department stores across America. Vintage Alfred Shaheen clothing is still coveted to this day.
